    Ditto to the thanks for the tutorial and for your time to do it. I am so inspired by your 'what if' brainstorm.

    Thank you so very much for the tutorial. You are wonderful to share with us. I am going on a quilting retreat the first week of April and had planned to take my string scraps and make string blocks. Didn't have any particular quilt in mind, just wanted to get those strings sewn up into something. Now with much thanks to you, I have a Plan. All I need to do is get the foundations and the triangles cut before hand, and maybe I will be able to finish all the blocks needed.
    again, thanks for your generosity.

    When you place you first [light] strip along the edge of the triangle, do you then sew 1/4" from the two met edges? I'm thinking the answer is 'yes', but I just wanted to confirm. TIA

    Yes--1/4". String blocks are really forgiving, though, if it is a little bit more or less. You do want that first seam as consistent as you can get it, so your triangles will match up to make diamonds when you put the blocks together.

    is there some way someone can send me the original instructions via email. I would like to keep them in my email folder so I can readily find them and not try to remember how to pull them up on the qb.

    Chris, yes, it is a 60° equilateral triangle. The only 60° template I have is the Tri Tool portion of the Tri Recs set. Following the directions Angelia gave us, I sketched the triangle on a piece of paper. Then I laid the Tri on top. Sorry for shadowing at the edges of the acrylic; I promise it is right on the line. Note that for this tool, I would have to continue on cutting at the top, rather than nip the top off as is usual. There may be other 60° tools that would go completely to the point, but this is what I have.
